STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION One-Piece Swimsuits, Cover Up, and Swim Shirt
Flaunt your Star Trek fandom at the beach or any poolside at the geek conventions you’ll be attending this summer with these one-piece swimsuits inspired by the uniforms in Star Trek: The Next Generation. They come in Blue (Sciences), Gold (Operations), and Red (Command). These are actually really cool, and I dig the style. They are complimented perfectly with a Starfleet Cover Up or the Deanna Troi Swim Shirt that I also included in the post as well.
They come from Think Geek and come with the following photos and descriptions:
Whether your destination is the ocean world of Pacifica, the pristine beaches of Risa, or your local Y, take the plunge with these Star Trek:TNG One-Piece Swimsuits modeled after the ST:TNG uniform. Choose Blue, Gold, or Red, whichever suits you. (There will be a test later.) The suit comes in sizes small through 2X and has a back hook closure with two adjustment options for a custom torso fit. It also features soft bust cups for shape which are removable if you prefer the look without them. And, of course, because we've all tried on bathing suits we loved when we set eyes on them that turned out to be unflattering, they're returnable so long as you haven't worn it. See above for full details.
Some bathing suits these days seem a little too... Betazoid wedding for us. Know what we mean? There's very little fabric or imagination involved. And while we applaud people who can confidently rock out that look, it's not us.
And it's especially not us in those transitions when you're headed to a place where swimwear is acceptable. Like when you're trying to get to the pool level in the hotel elevator with a bunch of business people or in the line at the nice little cafe waiting to get a bottle of water to take outside with you. Obviously, the perfect solution in this situation is a teleporter. But we can't offer you that. So here's the next best thing: a cover up.
This Star Trek:TNG Cover-Up Romper is perfect for folks who don't necessarily need to let it all hang out. It's our subtle nod to TNG. It's perfect for layering at a festival or throwing over your suit when you're sitting by the pool because you need a break from the con. You've got a flattering draped front. You've got an easy-fit drawstring waist. You've got your combadge for procuring another daiquiri (banana, of course, Timmy's favorite!). What more could you want?
Long-sleeved shirts as swimwear used to be exclusively rash guards for surfers and bodyboarders, but recently they've become more mainstream. Nobody's going to look at you weird if you wear one on the beach. (This is generally our criteria for buying bathing suits.) They're perfect for a long day in the sun when you may not want to be constantly reapplying sunscreen, and since we have to use SPF 90 to keep from spontaneously combusting on the spot, they're a great solution for us.
We've reproduced the look of Deanna Troi's lavender jumpsuit from 2nd and 3rd seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation with this swim shirt. The embroidered combadge is stitched on, and it features flatlock princess seams to fit a female's body. Why Troi? Well, see, it only makes sense to give the empath the swim shirt, because you know when you see somebody with angry, blistered skin you can almost feel their pain. It's like we all have a little Betazoid in us. We feel your pain; let us help you enjoy the outside responsibly.
